Umm... €49,500 (~$56,000) for a '51 body on a '78 chassis, with plenty of issues?

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2263513

Confused

cross posted to the oval forum... but maybe double what you'd expect to pay, or I'm out of touch with pricing?

This one is laughable and worth only about half his asking:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2275606

Wanting top dollar and you don’t even get a correct motor. Not to mention all the rust flashing on the underside of the body. Clearly poor body work showing its age. I did also enjoy all the new hardware and parts that were left unpainted lol.

[After the Schwimmwagen, the Kübelwagen is supposedly the second most thought after WW2 vehicle.]

Um, ever heard of an 82E?

It’s raining kubels right now lol.

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2276168

This one is, interesting....the nose skin has been replaced along with the rockers. Bottom of the doors have also had some work done. Deck lid isn’t correct and the windshield section is homemade.

That said, it looks to be a solid restoration candidate with some original metal in places that look decent. I’d love to see the body number personally as there’s a hodgepodge of things on her that make her seem more 43’ than 44’.

ok.. so when you say the car is number matching that means engine and trans and when you say your car is fully restored we expect it to have glass and an interior Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

A member emailed me concerned that the price of this car is too cheap to be a real ad
KdF Typ92 (VW82e) 1943 Price: 70000

Opinions?
Anyone recognize it?

I deleted the ad for now but I did not find the photos or the info elsewhere on the Internet, meaning it's a "stolen" ad posted here.
If it's a scammer I would like to ban the account from the site.

Thank you.

Edit: They are banned
